The Northern Line station was originally closed on 8 June 2015 to permit work to be undertaken on the replacement of the station’s ageing lifts.

It had been planned that the station would reopen in mid-March but the date was brought forward to 4 March, no doubt to the considerable relief of the passengers who normally used the station and the businesses locally that relied on those passengers.

Tufnell Park station was originally opened by the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway on 22 June 1907 and was designed by the note designer of Underground station Leslie Green. The lifts that have been replaced were installed in the 1970s although the station itself underwent modernisation in 2004.
